My poor blog has been neglected...

It's sad really. I have so much I need to catch up on but I just don't have the energy to do it. I started my new full time job on July 1st and I love it, the downside however is that I'm beyond exhausted.

This is an exhaustion that can't be helped merely with sleep, it's just part of my daily struggles given my Crohn's and fibro. Around 3pm every day I reach a point where I have a hard time functioning. If I could work a nap into my day that would be golden.

Before Marcus started coaching I used to be able to go home at 4 and nap for a bit, but now that he's occupied I have to get the kids home and continue to function. Which leaves very little energy for much of any things else.

This is a problem and I'm really not sure what to do about. I've struggled with constant and persistent fatigue since I was a senior in high school. Naps are my best friend and before kids it was so much easier to work a nap into the routine. Now, with Marcus working, I'm working, 3 year old twins, life, laundry, friends, dinner etc. etc. It just doesn't happen.

No doctor has ever been able to offer me any sound advice, but I think I'm going to need to do something different. Being this exhausted consistently is no fun, plus it leaves no time for anything fun, or even working out (which results in weight gain eek).

So, in part my absence is because I physically haven't been able to find the strength to do much beyond the necessities of my job and home life.

I'm going to keep on keeping on. If only I could go nap with Eli & Emerson at their preschool haha

I'm sorry you're struggling so much. I have a friend who dealt with, and recovered from, chronic fatigue...although not in conjunction with Crohns and Fibro. I can pass her email address along, if you're interested.
If you were closer I'd have you talk to my sister. She is a nutrition practitioner, she's had quite a bit of success with helping people that the medical field had no more to offer. This is her Facebook page.

I keep meaning to email you...hopefully this afternoon.
